seating is cramped and small if you're tall or plus sized. Concessions are a big wallet vac price-wise. The AC rained down on us like a polar-express making us yearn for the 90 degrees outside. I pity you if you're a prisoner here for more than a few hours at a time.

Bridgestone seems a very modern and state of the art facility. I've been here for sporting events also. Seats have a good view of the stage, and the acoustics were great, which can't be taken for granted. Seats themselves were not terribly comfortable though. Great location on Broadway, close to the other action. Easy to get out and back to... More

Been to a few concerts here. Right in the heart of downtown-walking distance. The acoustics are great. Lots of places to grab a bite or drink.

We came to town for the Barbershop convention and found the arena was nice and we even had some lost property returned to us! (The only down sides were be sure to bring a sweater as the HVAC works really too well and the food was "average".

They cycle everyone through metal detectors looking for guns (both legal and non-legal, presumably, and neither are allowed inside). The staff was not prepared for the size of our event and the lines to get in and cycle thru the metal detectors was unreasonably long for one of our events -- this got better later in the week (although we...

I've been to several shows at this venue and each time is always a great time. I honestly don't think there's a bad seat in the house and it's always clean. The sound is always clear and bands sound top notch, and the workers I've encountered have always been friendly and helpful. This place is easy to navigate and food... More

We purchased tickets for the televised CMT Awards at the start of the Country Music Festival upon arriving in Nashville....right up the back as we were "last minute", but that should've been OK. No big screens ??? !!! What ?? !! The only screen (above the centre) was almost completely blocked by the extensive lighting rig, and this screen was... More

Great place for convention and concerts. Placed right in the middle of town at Broadway, it is close to all the bars. Most of the hotels are nearby as well.

My wife and I are new to the area, we moved here last December. We are from Indiana and are big hockey fans so we have gone to several Predators games last year. We have recently purchased season tickets for the next two seasons, and a big part of that is the venue itself. There is not a bad seat... More

What an awesome venue. Whether you're seeing a concert or the predators kick some tail, this place is worth checking out. Even if you're not doing either of those, it's worth a walk by at least.
